Nice quiet place for lunch

Had several lunches here and usually get a fish dish which has always been extremely tasty and well prepared using quality ingredients and a varied menu

We ate here last week for lunch. I had the Reuben sandwich and others had various salads. All were VERY good. We had eaten supper there, first time for lunch. Will do it again! No breakfast.

This place was outstanding. I would recommend reservations on a weekend. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. The menu is limited but it is wonderful. There were four people in our party. We ordered four different entrees and all were exceptional. Yes, we tasted and shared. They also have a very nice wine list. This would be... More

I had a great burger here for lunch! One of the best I've had in a long time. They make the bun right there. I would definitely recommend this burger!

Found Bill's from other reviewers while visiting Owensboro and we were not disappointed. There were three of us for the first dinner and we were all thrilled with our choices, filets that were fork tender and a grouper that was perfectly cooked. The next day at lunch there were four of us. From the burger to salads with perfectly cooked... More

A quaint and quiet little Bistro situated on the edge of Downtown Owensboro. Upon entry I was greeted with smiles from the front of house staff and quickly seated. I ordered drinks and bread was brought to the table. Let the night begin. To begin the bread was fantastic. A thick cut, I believe, sour dough with room temperature butter... More

Passing through Owensboro on our travels back to Pennsylvania we had the pleasure of dining at Bill's Restaurant last Friday evening. We were pleasantly greeted by a staff member. We didn't realize the size of this establishment and didn't have a reservation but they kindly accommodated my husband and me with a table for two. The place had a pleasant... More

Thought they had a limited lunch menu but it was fine. My Chicken fruit salad was delicious and would recommend it. My friend had A grilled Salmon salad and it look great. I especially liked the low noise atmosphere. The waitress was not pushy and did not rush us.
